Featured Recipe: Jackfruit Idli

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cooking time: 45 minutes
  • Serves: 4 servings


  • Rice rawa: 1 cup
  • Fresh coconut: 1 cup grated
  • Jaggery: ½ cup 
  • Cardamom: 1 tsp
  • Ghee: 1 tsp
  • Salt: to taste
  • Ripe Jackfruit: 1 cup


  • To make the jackfruit paste, take a mixing jar and add to it coconut, jaggery, cardamom powder and jackfruit pieces. Use little water to make a fine paste.
  • Transfer the paste to a mixing bowl. Add the rice rawa to it, along with a pinch of salt. Mix the components well. Let the rice batter sit for about 20-25 minutes to allow the rawa to soak up the jackfruit paste well. 
  • The consistency of this better is supposed to be slightly thicker than the regular idli batter. As the final product will also be denser than regular idlis. 
  • Grease the idli moulds with ghee, and keep the idli steamer to boil. Add a scoop of the jackfruit batter in it. Steam the idlis for about 15 minutes or so. Prick a toothpick into one of the idlis to check if it is cooked. If the toothpick comes out clean, it means the idlis are cooked. 
  • Remove the idlis and serve these sweet idlis with a serving of coconut chutney and enjoy hot.
